Great Coffee is also Good

At Mahalia Coffee we strive every day to make the best coffee for our customers. But part of what makes a great cup of coffee is the good feeling you get from knowing that the cup you just enjoyed didn't come at the expense of another's freedom or wellbeing. We believe that there is no one solution to the many complex issues of ethics in coffee and trade, but a coming together of many likeminded organisations who seek to solve pieces of the puzzle. For this reason, we don't favour one doctrine, but participate in many.

Our focus is to find the best quality beans having the perfect flavour combined with the best ethical outcome.

To achieve this we support the work of Fairtrade and the Rainforest Alliance. We favour organic products, and toxin free processes, such as the Swiss Water method of decaffeination. Finally, Mahalia Coffee is also actively supporting coffee growers through our participation in the Kiva Microfinancing Project.

Fairtrade seeks to end the exploitation of people in developing nations by demanding a fair market price for the goods bought, and also that the producers get their fair share of this price. Mahalia Coffee is a registered Fairtrade partner and sells many products carrying the certification - which requires that the coffee is made from 100% Fairtrade beans. We also include a proportion of Fairtrade beans in many of our other products. As part of our Fairtrade certification, we give back to the organisation 2% of the sale proceeds of all Fairtrade beans sold.

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land use practices, business practices and consumer behaviour. We use Rainforest Alliance certified beans in many of our coffee blends, and applaud the work that they do to conserve the world’s most precious resources.
